Johnny Manziel Will Reportedly Let the Internet Decide His Halloween Costume

College football's bad boy is set to take over Halloween, and just how Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel does it is entirely up to you. Well, you and thousands of other college football fans around the world.

As Fox Sports’ Clay Travis reports, Manziel has agreed to let the Internet decide his Halloween attire this year:

After reading this email [from a reader] I reached out to Johnny, who says he reads the site every day, to ask him two things: 1. did he have a costume already decided for this year? and 2. would he be open to letting Outkick readers vote on what his Halloween costume should be this year?

And we're in luck.

Because Johnny's willing to let you guys vote on what his Halloween costume should be this year.

Yes, because no bad idea has ever begun with the fateful words, “Let’s let the Internet decide!”

If you recall, Manziel took over social media platforms by storm last Halloween when pictures of him prancing around in a Scooby Doo costume came to light. Fans posed beside him, scantily clad women emerged in droves, and Manziel sat back grinning as if he’d just downed an entire box of Scooby Snacks.

Who would have guessed the guy in the oversized dog costume would go on to upset No. 1 Alabama two weeks later on his way to the 2012 Heisman Trophy?

If you ask me, I’d like to see Manziel dress up as adversary and Tide quarterback AJ McCarron. Something tells me he’d have a bunch of girls lining up in College Station to be his Katherine Webb.

Other interesting choices would be a jumbo felt-tip sharpie, the Heisman Trophy or an alarm clock.

Per Travis' report, "You can tag Clay your suggestions on Twitteremail him, leave a comment below or at Outkick, or make a suggestion using the hashtag #johnnyhalloween."

Whatever the top choice ends up being, we can pretty much assume it will be completely ridiculous—which can only be expected from the Internet.

This should be interesting.
